The collection includes contributions from established artists such as Hyldon, Carlos Dafe, Robertinho Silva, Alex Malheiros and Sabrina Malheiros, but saves room for emerging talents as well. A wide range of Rio's underground dance styles are represented here, and all are original compositions prepared for this album except for "Mas Que Nada", Jorge Ben's composition which has become universally known via Sergio Mendes & Brazill 66. Everyone will have their favorites among the other tracks, "Vam' Bora (Suonho Remix)" is one of mine. If I were DJ for a dance party in the near future, I'd be particularly happy to have "Porta", "Veneno" and "Fogo No Chao". For a World Cup game watch I'd reach for "Casino Bangu" and "Leite De Pedra", as well as "Mas Que Nada".
The party has already started in Rio, and this is your chance to catch up. Friends from Rio is available in CD, vinyl and digital formats.
